There is a 7x7 board and 2 players, each having 2 queens. The queens can move just like the queens in chess, but cannot capture each other. At the beginning, the first player places both the queens on any 2 different squares. Then the second player does the same with his queens. From this point, the players alternate turns, moving both queens each turn. When a queen is moved, the square that was previously occupied is now blocked and cannot be stood on or moved across for the remainder of the game. The first player who is unable to move any of his queens loses!
I am designing a player for it. What will be the strategy for the player who starts first or second? Also, what are best starting moves for any player?
